  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Granulated sugar

  • Fresh fruit


  • Heat a large frying pan over a medium low heat
  • In a large bowl mix together the eggs, sugar, vanilla bean paste, cinnamon, salt , whole milk and single cream. Don’t over whisk this, just a loose combination is great.
  • Add your butter to the frying pan and spread all over the pan
  • Whilst the butter melts dip your slices of brioche in your cream mix. You don’t want to over soak the bread just an in, turn and out! Add flat straight to the frying pan. Do this a portion at a time, so In this instance, 3 slices in the pan at any time.
